White and Whiter

Despite the recent buzz surrounding race and fashion (thank you Mr. Meisel), a look at the latest couture runways it becomes clear that, still, no one seems to give a shit.

There were only 4 runways that had any 'ethnic' models whatsoever : Givenchy (where 3 ethnic girls opened the show - the only real statement thus far), Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Elie Saab (with the return of the forever flawless Yasmin Warsame).

Only in JPG and Elie Saab did the black models have more than 1 look. Only JPG and Givenchy had more than 1 black model in the show.

Chanel, Armani, Lacroix, and Valentino were complete white-outs.

So fucking boring.

Below please peruse the fiercest stompers around.

Take note bitches.
